, the romney campaign against president obama carries the scent of hell. john sununu, the top romney surrogate, barks at that lazy one in the white house who doesn't know how to be an american, who sarah palin mocks for shucking and jiving, and donald trump accuses again and again and again of being from kenya and playing monkey business with the country's economic numbers. you know, the same fellow romney says cheats on the welfare checks to feed his political base. the guy gingrich calls the food stamp president. listen to sununu last night yelling at former governor bill richardson to shut up saying general colin powell's political judgment is based on racial bias. trump offering a big bet the president won't show his student transcripts all to diminish the president's academic rise to editor of the harvard law review. yes, it's all directed at drumming up the blue collar white vote for the republican ticket and, yes, it smells. david corn is author of "the 47 percent" and joy reid is managing editor of the grio. both are msnbc political analysts. if the romney campaign is really winning, y

surprised? no. but we probably should be surprised. then there's john sununu. >> and, frankly, when you take a look at colin powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for endorsing president obama. >> what reason would that be? >> well, when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states, i applaud colin for standing with him. >> ana, discuss. >> well, look, he has since walked it back and admitted that there are policy issues that colin powell is a friend of his. i think what he said was not the right thing to say. i don't think it was correct. i think colin powell is a very respected person. >> ana, ana, ana, listen, why is john sununu after all the things he says -- i'm just asking and i'm not a partisan person. people will say, oh my gosh, you're carrying water for obama. i'm not. it doesn't matter to me. i'm a journalist. or that you like -- you guys are trying to get mitt romney elected president. neither of which is true. but why is john sununu a surrogate for t
ex-president and that is how she made her name. still, she was better than john mccain. and you know in the hillary obama debate, the questions going question's going to obama were so thoughtful saturday night live did a sketch on it with hillary being asked these incredibly intricate, complicated policy questions and then the moderator asking obama if he would like another pillow. [laughter] and that was a fair summary and the stunning thing of last week's debate was and how poorly obama did. he is as good as he ever was. [applause] if john mccain had been on the stage with him, we would be the ones -- [inaudible] that is how magnificent mitt romney was in was the first time obama had to face a tough opponent, the first time. his whole life he has been, as he says, make any fast moves and he looked home and why people will love you. by his own account he was smoking pot at occidental university not particularly applying himself and manages to transfer to one of the premier universities and america, colombia and from there he rockets to harvard law school and president of "the harvar

protocol to clear the building. and i was surprised that vicki henisi, the acting sheriff had called john st. croix and told him on his personal cell phone according to his statement made to kcbs in this room that she called over because there was some threat on the mayor's life. so, now, it was turns out that it is a bomb threat. and i would like to think that the mayor cares about the citizens of this city and county. and i would like to think that if there is a bomb threat in the city hall that the whole building is evacuated. >> i was upset in the minutes that we could say easily on the 29th. mr. hur that you recessed the meeting and adjourned it at the end. but i personally witnessed it in the meeting as soon as the bomb threat came in this meeting was adjourned i saw him do that with my own eyes, next there to mr. st. croix and to here it adjourned and reconvenes and this is unusual and none of it is in the minutes. so the actual record of what actually happened in this room is not accurate. and i object to that. and when i said that this was done inclusion with the mayor and steve

was dissolved in, what, john, february, march? and then there was a lot to do on the union negotiations with them because they had rights. so i do think that it would not necessarily be bad in the next couple months to have an update from them and, you know, coordinate that in some of the topics that might be timely since we're going to be going into budget again. the biggest hurdle, honestly, right now the biggest hurdle is a software system that was designed and installed that is extremely difficult and it has some issues in business practice. in other words, when like if pamela were doing, and she'll be up here, but fa if she was doing a process it has to lack at what are the rules. this thing doesn't, it's very difficult and there's recognition all throughout the city that this has caused problems for a lot of departments and those are the kinds of things we're running into. it's not reluctance on the part of the entities to approve our requisitions, it's that they can't see the requisition in the computer because it's there but they can't see it. we're trying to work through th
than john mccain. and even in the obama hillary debate the questions going to obama were so soft ball saturday night live did a sketch on it with hillary being asked these intricate complicated policy questions and the moderator asking obama if he would like another fellow. that was a fair summary and the stunning thing was not how poorly obama did was the other one. [applause] >> if john mccain had been on the stage, we would be the ones with long faces. it was how magnificent mitt romney was and the first time obama had to face a tough opponent. his whole life he has been as long as you don't make fast moves white people will love you. by his account he was smoking pot and manage to transfer to one of the premier universities in america and from there rockets to harvard law school and president, only been president for two weeks and wednesday nobel priest -- peace prize. this was the first test he faced. he didn't do so well. you see it with stacy dash. it is as if as i wrote in my column they spend so much time fawning over entities like eugene robinson and barack obama that to res
of the video. >> they panicked. >> former white house chief of staff john sununu is senior advisor to mitt romney's campaign. >> this is purely political reaction in a white house that had prepared itself to establish a narrative of a president getting rid of the threat of terrorism using the death of bin laden to focus on that and waking up one morning and finding out that terrorism on 9/11 of this year was back full-fledged and even killing a u.s. ambassador. >> former obama state department spokesman p.j. crowley. >> i don't see a political agenda. i see the fog of war. the fact that we still do not know, it's not about politics. it's about the difficult task of reconstructing what happened and having full access to the site and to all the people that played a role in this. >> september 18th. >> did the administration have any sort of heads up that violence was increasing specifically in libya before the attack? >> i'm not aware of any. this is matter that is under investigation in terms what precipitated the attack. >>> that night on the late show with david letterman, president obama
for your vote in this important election. thank you. >> hi i'm john riso. i lived in district five for 27 years with my wife and daughter, my daughter went to the public schools here in san francisco. i'm running in san francisco as supervisor to fix some of the city's most pressing problems. i am very interested in fixing education. i was elected twice by the voters to the community college board where i have been dealing with tough issues, such as corruption, severe budget deficits and mismanagement. i have been able to make tremendous progress on all of these to fix the problems. now we need to return our attention to the city's schools. the city is not doing enough to help the district. we have a, shrinking cool year while the classes are increasing in size. >> i want to address the affordable, the city fees are going up and up and up and small businesses are priced out of the city and i need to work on that. i also am a sierra club activist. for 15 years working in the green energy field, i am a transit activist as well as well as working on parks. so in the environment i need to tel
john in north carolina, who writes under the handle affirmatively. john writes, north carolina doesn't have large failed cities of crackheads and gangbangers and thus rarely votes for the democrat nominee. gideon moore? >> i'm not sure what to make of that. we certainly have our issues. the fact is that this is a state that traditionally has republican nominees for president and i believe we will return to that in 2012. >> next up is rich in centreville, virginia, on our line for republicans government ahead, rich. >> thanks for taking my call. last night i was watching i think nbc news and they were talking about the electoral votes. this is more for you guys at c-span. when they were talking about the possibility the electoral votes could end up high in the house, romney is the president and senate would elect biden as the vice president, if we go forward next week, is that -- i know the electoral votes may wind up determining the election. could you guys put something together to explain that? i mean, i never thought that was a possibility. and i get so twisted. i don't care what
could it be? believe it or not, this guy thinks he has an idea. a researcher at johns hopkins, he's predicted how many of us may lose power. remember, irene left 7 million without power. >> our model suggest 10 million. >> reporter: roughly 10 million without power for a week or more. if 50 million feel the effect of this, 1 in 5, could be without electricity. a very big storm coming our way. >> that's an unbelievable number. >>> we'll go back out to sam champion in new york city, in preparations under way for how this city, the largest city in the country, would deal with hurricane sandy. >> bianna, you know, we have seen storms move up this coastline and breeze by new york. only one hurricane in recent memory irene made a move to this city and the city got ready for it. forecasters are being careful to let folks know right away that this storm has more strong effects than irene may have had. new york city is operating under a state of emergency and wants everyone prepared today for a monday storm. boarding up homes and buildings. >> i'm really nervous about this. i am. i'm cooki
